Very good basic Italian food. Popular place with generous helpings. Huge salad, enough for two people. Would go back again

“Not the same”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

This place is just not the same. I would always go to Carinos down in El Paso and it always delivered on all standards. It's been a while since going and I was excited to see one here but it just wasn't the same as I remember.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

This is where I love to go on my birthday. I love their Timballo spagetti, bread sticks and chocolate cake!

“Cant get it right.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

I called in an order for Marguerite piazza and side salad. Whew. After a 20 minute wait my check was brought to the car with no food in sight. This peeves me as they want to be tipped for a job not done. Another several minutes passed and a bag was brought to the car and I could feel the heat from piazza so headed back to hotel. Upon checking knnon the pepperoni and mushroom piazza in the bag I called Carinos and the order taker said the correct pie would be waiting for me. It wasn't. I finally went inside and showed the mistake to the manager as she glibly commented "yeah they put mushrooms on it. I returned to my car and after another 8 minute wait the manager brought out the correct pie. Offered me a soda! Inside the box was a tomato and cheese pie with some Basil and cold tomatoes on top as an afterthought. Too make matters worse the pie was undercooked Foley white doth. Not edible. Now I know why there are no cars in this parking lot.

“It was just "OKAY"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

This place used to be pretty good. This time, service was mediocre, food was mediocre. Probably won't go back again.
